Pastor Geoff provides an explanation of how the New Testament uses the Old Testament. In particular, Pastor Geoff shows how Paul uses Psalm 68 in Ephesians 4. What has baffled many in wondering 'how' Paul used the psalm to further his argument in Ephesians 4, Pastor Geoff endeavors to explain.
Paul used Psalm 68 in context and, in fact, the way in which Paul uses the psalm to enhance his argument in Ephesians 4 could not have been more appropriate and compelling.
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff begins the concluding song of 'eternal security' and shows how Paul raises 3 legal challenges to eternal security -- who could oppose me? who could accuse me? who could condemn me?

Pastor Geoff continues the Family Bible Hour Series on "Hermeneutics — how to rightly interpret the Bible."
This topic today covers Step #1 on observing the text. When interpreting the Word of God, we must observe it by giving a careful eye to the words themselves, the structure (and context) of a text, the atmosphere of the text, and the literary forms of a particular text (narrative, discourse, poetry, prophecy).
